The power of listening to your gut

  • In England, 25-year-old hairdresser Sarah Burns began losing weight and bleeding during her cycle. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
  • Ovarian cancer is called “whisper cancer” because of the symptoms of sexual arousal, including fatigue, bloating, and pain.
  • Burns needed a doctor for her symptoms, and an internal voice telling her that something was missing.

Sarah Burns knows the power of listening. This led to a diagnosis of cervical cancer.

according to Cheshire Live, Signs of burns began in December 2019. At first, she had to lose weight during the menstrual cycle (menstrual bleeding). Her cycle also became shorter.

Burns listened intently to what they had to say, and decided to see a doctor. The doctor performed blood tests and arranged for an ultrasound, which determined the mass of her left ovary. A.D. In August 2020, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

She has surgery to remove her left ovary and fallopian tube; Burning is now cancer-free. She underwent two rounds of IFF to protect her eggs and chose not to undergo chemotherapy to protect her future fertility.

Understanding cervical cancer

Burns was diagnosed with Mucinous Ovarian Cancer (MOC). This type of cervical cancer is very rare. In Burns’ UK, an estimated 200 people get sick with MOC every year.

Ovarian cancer has been called “whisper cancer” because of symptoms that are difficult to detect. “From many studies, this is a set of symptoms,” says Dr. Bet Carlan, a gynecologist oncology at UCLA Medical Center. If this is really happening and you are experiencing it every day, and they are getting worse, worse, if that only lasts for two weeks, you should call your doctor.

Trust your inner voice

Burns thought she might be losing weight and stress, but her “gut” doctor told her to see a doctor. She felt her intestines and her instincts, so she was able to make an accurate diagnosis. It is very important to listen to your body, and ask for help when you feel something.

Cedar-Sinai Dr. Zuri Murrell, a colorful surgeon, agrees with the power of listening to your inner voice. It also advises patients to plan each appointment and do their own research. In an earlier interview, he said, “It’s really important for you to educate yourself and be your own health care lawyer.”

“And that’s one thing I think is very important,” said Dr. Murrell. You should schedule each doctor’s appointment.
